Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hauntingly beautiful, wickedly funny, and devastatingly moving novel of innocence and dreams that announces the arrival of a major new talent to the literary scene

In the attic room at 26 Waifer Avenue, identical twins Georgia and Bessi Hunter share nectarines and forge their identities, while escaping from the sadness and danger that inhabit the floors below. But innocence lasts for only so long--and dreams, no matter how vivid and powerful, cannot slow the relentless incursion of the real world.

Synopsis:

Diana Evans is the new literary voice of multicultural Britain. Wickedly funny and devastatingly moving, it is an extraordinary first novel. Part fairytale, part nightmare, it moves from the mundane to the magical, the particular to the universal with exceptional flair and imagination. This was winner of the 2005 Orange New Writers' Prize, and has been shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel.
